As the name suggests, the Moto G (2015) was unveiled last year and even though quite a number of devices have been released to beat off its completion, there are reasons to believe this device is still a top of the class model.

Offering the latest design, top-notch features, an excellent camera and real value for your money, there is really nothing that can stop you from having this device on your list of gadgets. Still on this, we have lined up for you the top 6 reasons as to why you should choose to buy the Moto G (2015) model as opposed to any other Motorola smartphones.

Decent pricing

The 2015 version of the Moto G was released at a price of $179 for the 8GB model while the 16GB variant came in at $219 for the 16GB version; prices that are still very decent for such an excellent Android phone. You can also get the device on low-cost monthly plans.

The latest design

The Moto G (2015) version has only been around for some few months and including this phone in the same talk with old designs would be doing it an injustice. However, given the number of devices that come in on each year, it is easy to write off a design that is a few months old. Nonetheless, the 3rd gen Moto G has an appealing build, especially when compared with the latest models.



Even though it does not feature the leather that comes with more expensive models, it still has an amazing look.

Quality camera

Given that this device is a lower or midlevel device, not much is expected with respect to the camera. Nonetheless, this device comes with a decent snapper of 13MP on the rear and 2MP on the front. The HDR and burst mode fitted on the main snapper make the device more than just superb. Remember, when it comes to quality snappers, it is not always about the number of megapixels.

Amazing specs

You already saw the pricing of the Moto G (2015) so don’t expect to compete with the best in the industry. However, given that this device is a budget phone, you will get the best performance when running several apps, playing games or even browsing the web.

With its 5-inch LCD display screen that manages a res power of 1280 by 720 pixels, you won’t be disappointed when watching videos on YouTube or making a Skype video call. The base model comes with a RAM of 1GB while the high end model features a RAM of 2GB. Both models, however, pack a quad-core Snapdragon 410 chipset that is clocked at 1.4GHz.

Expandable memory

Unlike iOS, Android-based devices come with an expansion slot for a microSD card. This is something that has been differentiating iOS and Android devices for quite some time now. However, changes have started coming in and not so many love them.

Most high end devices no longer come in with support for microSD cards, a move that means one has to go for the higher-end model (which is usually costlier than the base model) in order to get enough storage space. To beat this, the Moto G (2015) is all you need. The phone comes with top end specs as well as supports expandable memory.

Cool software

When compared to the likes of Samsung, the Moto G (2015) comes with a trimmed UI with much fewer apps as compared to the TouchWiz UI that ships with Samsung-based devices. The apps preinstalled on the device are actually helpful. In addition, you will be getting the stock Android Lollipop on the 3rd gen Moto G.
